Adoption News
Featured Dog:
Bella is a beautiful retriever mix who is approximately 3 years old. She came to us in pretty rough shape. Bella had been allowed to wander and we are unsure if she ever spent time in a house. She was severely matted and needed to be shaved down. We soon learned she was positive for both heartworm and Lyme Disease. She has gone through treatments for both while staying in a loving foster home. She is now housebroken and learning to walk on a leash.

Bella has been working on basic commands and her new owner will need to continue that with her.  She does need to be an only pet. Despite all that Bella has been through, she is an incredibly sweet, loving girl. Bella did not have a great start to her life but she is ready for a new beginning. If you are willing to give Bella the life she deserves and shower her with so much love that she forgets her past, please fill out our online application. Bella will be at SATURDAY adoption hours 12-3pm (not Wednesdays).
Featured Cats:
Ellie and Magic
Sweet Cats Ellie & Magic were surrendered together. We would like to see them go on to their forever home together. A reduced adoption fee will apply. Ellie is about 2-1/2 and Magic is about 1-1/2. Please stop by on a Saturday afternoon or Wednesday evening and see if they steal your heart.
